Original Size : 35cm x 20.5 cm
Time : about 170-180 hours
Tools : .3mm & .5mm mech pencils , B, 6B, black gel pen, erasers ( pointed , kneaded and regular), blending stumps and soft tissue papers .

I call it like I see it mate. The details in the scales are mind-boggling. I thought I was being patient with one piece that took me about 80 hours but 170 - 180 hours for this? Hats off! By the way, I was in India 10 days ago, I should have stopped by for some lessons :D. Keep it up.

You're most welcome. I loved India, as usual. My seventh trip. Went to Ranthambhore National Park in Rajasthan and Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand. I'll probably be back in India in May. Where are you? Maybe should come by and kowtow before the great master Parul. Please continue to amaze us with your skill.

Not even kidding you, I had to make a double-take, even triple-take when viewing this image.  I just can't believe how...REAL it looks.  Even the reflection off the eye is just so realistic, it's absolutely insane that you've managed to create something as real as a photo like this with just a pencil.  Absolutely phenomenal!
